Only Three States Matter

Jordan is completely clueless. A leader says it is my fault and I will fix it. Jordan has blamed everyone for the bad season except himself and Hip Hop (or did I miss that one?).

And to act like he still deserves a job shows EVERYONE how incompentent he really is. Atleast Ed S. says everyone is accountable including himself. Which is another whole story.

Well he hasn't blamed the GM - cause he knwos his only hope of keeping his job is the GM - no comments about making the food and buying the groceries.

Speaking of idiots, Jerry Jones folks

lol at the Jerry Jones video. Eddie has blamed the GM by saying this team's roster isn't good enough.

"Eddie is a helluva coach. Eddie can really coach,'' Van Gundy said. "That whole thing there sounds absolutely crazy to me. His offense is complex, one of the most complex in the league, so it takes time. And now after one year, just as people are getting comfortable with it, they are going to make a change? It doesn't make any sense.''

Larry Hughes', Gilbert Arenas', Caron Butler's, and Antwan Jamison's career was based on their ability to make jump shots.

Andre Igoudala's, Elton Brand's, Sam Dalembert's, Thaddeus Young's, and Jrue Holliday's aren't. Also Eddie Jordan is very overrated. His biggest accomplishment in the NBA was that one season his team was 4 games over .500.

And what other coach in the NBA uses the excuse that his team needs a full year to learn an offense?

Eddie Jordan wouldn't get so much league wide praise if he weren't so damned handsome. (Figured one below the belt insult was in order to commemorate EJ's final game)

How much credence do you put in the rumors about Larry Brown coming back to Philadelphia? I think LB could have won a lot more games with this roster - maybe 45-50- because he would have had them playing defense first.

That's a nice optimistic viewpoint but to play 'defense first' you need guys who are good at defense, and most of the sixers bench couldn't defend a guy with one arm missing 3 fingers...

Brown is a carpetbagger, if the sixers offer him more money (and control) he'll come back - he'll build the team in his image - maybe eek out a playoff round win and then leave the team right at the precipice of the long descent into crapitude

Coaches protect coaches
players protect players

it's the code

48 min until no more moron. I actually blame Stefanski far more than I blame Jordan. It wasn't like Stefanski didn't know the guy. When you hire your "nephew", knowing his various warts, and your nephew screws up, guess who deserves the blame?

Hiring him was stupid, not firing him back in December or January was criminal.

Absolutely Agreed.

Here we go, final tip of the EFJ era!

Orlando's starters are out there. Vince Carter looks like he doesn't care, which doesn't tell me anything about whether Orlando is taking this game seriously.

Pretty move by Jrue on the blocks.

I forgot Orlando's announcers were complete pricks.

I may have to mute this, because their dickhead comments are going to make me root for a Sixers win.

Jrue needs to hit his next two three-point attempts to get to 40%.

The Magic's sideline reporter chick has a unibrow.

T-Wolves up two on the Pistons early.

T-Wolves up by 7 on the Pistons.

37-20, Magic after the first.

The Pistons apparently aren't playing Stuckey, Gordon or Charlie V. Not sure if Rip is hurt, he might be. They're down 2 in the second quarter to the T-Wolves.

these announcers are indeed pricks. they have only hateful things to say, which is a nice complement to zumoff and pickney's all-positive drivel.

Shit, they just mentioned me but not by name. Asshole.

Matt Goukas is apparently a fan of the rotation charts.

It would have been nice if Guokas at least give you some credit.

I missed it, what exactly did they say?

There are a couple of good blogs in Philadelphia, they track all the substitutions the sixers make.

Then he talked about how the lineup the Sixers had on the floor was one of the worst possible defensive lineups in the league.

fuck eddie jordan i am so happy this will be the last game i ever have watch that is coached by him.

The fucking Pistons are down by 12.

Speights cuts it to 18. I believe he's taken 30 shots in his 5 minutes of action.

I want them to lose this, but I was hoping for an entertaining game for three quarters.

5-point game in Minny, and I'm not sure what more the Pistons can do to tank the game, other than calling Eddie Jordan for a couple coaching tips.

i hate stan van gundy soooo much

T-Wolves back up by 10. F you, Joe Dumars.

Nice hustle by Meeks there for that rebound. How often do you see Willie do something like that?

bdownbear reply to Brian on Apr 14 at 21:11

Brian, would you consider Meeks an upgrade over Green?

Too early to tell. He seems to actually look for things other than shots, like rebounds and steals and assists, but being an upgrade over Willie isn't really an accomplishment.

Speights and Meeks lead the team in FGA/36 min. Then Thad, Brand, and Iverson.

Kinda random. I for some reason just can't get over that.

Seems about right to me. I think they told Meeks to shoot as much as possible, and Speights hasn't passed up a shot all year.

Brand sure looks energized, just in time for golf season.

I would wish something terrible on the city of Detroit for tanking this game so blatantly, but I'm not sure what I could wish on it that doesn't happen regularly anyway.

Kap..oh, no.

28-foot three in transition, nothing but net.

Flagrant one on Brand. Nice.

Willie with the air ball. Nice.

Fucking Pistons. Down 14 now.

12 more minutes, folks. Sixers down by 23 heading into the final quarter of the EFJ era (error?).

The Polish Hammer would be an MVP candidate if he could play against Speights 30 minutes/night.

Of course, that goes for most centers with a pulse.

6-point game in Detroit. Do I put it on?

End of an Error. I like that.

Pistons within 3 with 9+ left.

I wish the Sixers would get this game over quickly so I can watch the end of the Pistons game.

Does anything that happens in this game really matter?

Pistons game much more meaningful.

Charlie V!!!!!!! Pistons up!

For the last time, I HATE EDDIE JORDAN as a coach. HE IS A COMPLETE, INCOMPENTENT, DUMB, COACH. WHY is Willie Green playing and Not JRUE right now???????? WHY, can someone explain please.

I hope I never meet Eddie Jordan as I will end up doing stuff I will regret.

I was just about to write "I'm sure glad EFJ is getting important developmental minutes for Willie Green here."

What an asshole he is.

Sorry, I took away your chance. I cannot even watch the game. I am watching the Flyers postgame (win 2-1) and Phillies murder DC. When 33 is off the floor, I will "enjoy" the last few minutes.

Said earlier this year that if these two teams played 100 times this season, the Sixers would maybe win once. It's the definition of a bad matchup.

As bad as they get with this coach, these systems and these players playing these systems.

David Aldridge on Twitter:

"Sixers down 24 in fourth. They won't let Eddie Jordan twist in the wind tomorrow: "it will be quick," says a source."

Thank you, I NEEDED to read hear that right now.

Hopefully not painless though.

He's already getting millions, I hope somebody rips him a new one then rips his new one a newer one.

DET Up 6 with the ball

Corey Brewer air ball! I love it.

T-Wolves are fouling to extend the game.

The Pistons are really bad. After spending all that money last year on free agents. Wow. Come on Pistons, make these FT.

what would be our chance at a top 3 pick if we lost to memphis?

5-point game with 15.7 seconds left. Come on Daye, just hit them and end this miserable season.

The Pistons Win and the Sixers Lose.

So does it matter if the Clippers lose? i would rather they get the 8th pick than the Utah Jazz. The Clippers need it more...

i'm so so sad that we had to root against the 76ers at the end of the season. that right there is just f****d up. it seriously screwed with my psyche, and continues to do so. not one day in my life did i ever root AGAINST the 76ers. then this season...then this blog.

right when i started to hate myself for it, i told Brian that I was gonna start rooting for The Bucks. but, it didn't take. i can't root for the Bucks or any other team. i am incapable of that.

I root for the 76ers. And to root against them is just bad and stupid and ugly.

i hope they draft well and i hope the gm is good and i hope the coach is good and i hope we win a championship next year.

i just know i'm never ever gonna try to root against the 76ers ever again.

I agree with you, Key.

I hate rooting against my team, no matter how bad they are. Instead, I let myself root for the Pistons, an equally ugly position.

that said, we've got better odds for the draft and a better likelihood of improving this young team. If nothing else, the age and talent level of the core of this team should have us looking on the bright side (and happy this season is over).
